This beautifully situated multi-unit facility has great staff and great sight lines overlooking La Ropa Playa. Rooms are spacious, clean, well maintained, and comfortable. Due to its mountainside setting there are lots of stairs but the staff will come pick you up with their carts if you can't manage the uphill hike. Pools and beach access is great. The pool...

Therefore a lot of activities are not operating and some stores/restaurants are closed. HOWEVER, that meant less people at our hotel and the staff focused on us!! They all took very good care of...

My wife and I have vacationed in Zihua on 2 occasions and can't wait to go back again. The resort staff is very friendly and the Mexican Buffet at Z's was great. The location of the resort is great. You can walk into town and have access to 3 different beaches.

We spent a week in the 3 bedroom villa. The villa was amazing. The staff is wonderful, so helpful. The Sunday brunch at Zi and lunch at the Surf Club were great.
